I am sending this in preparation for your upcoming hearing in Portland, OR. I am
unable to attend but want to say something. I completely and wholeheartedly
support the position of the National Federation of the Blind. I am particularly
concerned both at the cost of having each and every intersection having these
noisy traffic signals and unsafe domes. They would become unsafe in rainy and/or
icy conditions. Then there are those in society who want to wear high (or higher
than normal) heels. That creates to me a situation of an accident just waiting
to happen. Isn't life tricky enough? Let's bring some reason and common sense
into this process.
Thank you for your time and attention.
